Life-School – Our Vision

Right from the time of Yog Niketan Dham’s birth, we are taught how to excel in our studies so we can find great careers, earn a lot, and achieve fame. But how often do we wonder if there are any schools that provide us with the key to living?

There are institutions that teach you how to become a doctor, an engineer, or a businessman, but is there anywhere that you learn about being happy and healthy? Or, do you ever wonder the significance of achieving complete harmony between your mind, body, and soul?

At Yog Niketan Dham, our vision is to create such a platform for everyone where they learn the true values of life. We aspire to craft a life school where you can learn how to share and care, how to be mindful and responsible, how to take ownership for your actions, and above all, how to live a life that is content. At our ashram, you learn to be disciplined and to take control of your mind and body.

What our students says about us?

Continuous practice of Asanas, Pranayama and Meditation helped me to cure many Ailments by myself. This time I came to India specifically to participate in YTTC. Along with Yoga I learnt a lot about Yoga Therapy, Ayurveda and Reiki by which I could find the co-relation of these traditional Arts.

It’s a different kind of feeling to share about the classes here. As a beginner I was nervous in starting but the masters they made it so easy that I can finally say that I am a confident person.
